Thanks to another kind visitor (Thomas from the great state of Texas), I was able to review the Minotla AF 300mm F/4 APO G (HS).  This lens is fairly small and portable, which makes it a good birding or sports lens in decent light.  Without the hood, it’s about the same size and weight as the Sony 70-200mm F/2.8 SSM G, just to give you something as a comparison.

It also turned in an overall very good performance, the only downer is the somewhat strong color fringing, more about that in the review.  If Sony would update this lens with some “ED” elements and SSM focusing, (not SAM), it would sell like hotcakes, of course that’s assuming if it was priced right.
